Therapy for healthcare professionals
Supporting the 'helping professions'
Are you a healthcare professional?
"Be confused, it’s where you begin to learn new things. Be broken, it’s where you begin to heal. Be frustrated, it’s where you start to make more authentic decisions. Be sad, because if we are brave enough we can hear our heart’s wisdom through it. Be whatever you are right now. No more hiding. You are worthy, always". - S.C. Lourie
I offer therapy for healthcare professionals (particularly those working in mental health). In my role as director of in2gr8mentalhealth Ltd I advocate to destigmatise lived experience of mental health difficulties in mental health professionals. Being a psychologist or mental health professional does not make us immune to being vulnerable to the challenges that life brings. However, there is still significant stigma surrounding healthcare professionals' lived experience of mental health difficulties and this can lead to high levels of shame and can be a significant barrier in accessing support and disclosing when we are struggling. I have my own lived experience of mental health difficulties and I value this in my practice in the same way as my professional training. I have found my own therapy to be a very beneficial process to understand myself better and grow as a person and a clinical psychologist. I hope to provide a safe and confidential therapeutic space to reflect and work through the dilemmas related to being a mental health professional who also happens to have lived experience of mental health difficulties. You can book an initial session by email or telephone to discuss this further.
